-- Phase III Secondary Endpoint Results Demonstrate A Significantly Higher Disease-free Survival Rate following nab-paclitaxel as Investigational Therapy in Neoadjuvant Breast Cancer --
Neu-Isenburg/Frankfurt, Germany and Summit, New Jersey — December 7, 2017 — The German Breast Group (GBG), the German Gynecological Oncology Working Group-Breast (AGO-B) and Celgene Corporation today announced long-term invasive disease-free survival results from the GeparSepto clinical trial comparing the investigational use of nab-paclitaxel (ABRAXANE®) to solvent-based paclitaxel in early high-risk breast cancer patients at the 2017 San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium (SABCS). The results from the 1,206 patient study found that nab-paclitaxel demonstrated a significantly higher disease-free survival rate in high risk early breast cancer patients when compared to conventional solvent-based paclitaxel.
"nab-Paclitaxel at a dose of 125 mg/m² weekly is equally efficacious but less toxic than at 150 mg/m²"

Updated Phase III Results from German Breast Group (GBG) Demonstrate Reduced Dose of Nab-Paclitaxel (ABRAXANE®) Maintains Efficacy while it Improves Tolerability in High-Risk Early Breast Cancer
SAN ANTONIO & NEU-ISENBURG, Germany & FRANKFURT, Germany -- The German Breast Group (GBG) said less may be more when it comes to the dose of innovative pharmaceuticals used to treat cancer. A follow-up to a Phase III trial presented at last year's San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium (SABCS) demonstrated a lower dose of nab-paclitaxel (ABRAXANE®) (125mg/m2/week) maintains efficacy and is less toxic than a higher dose (150mg/m2/week) that was the starting point in the study. Both doses demonstrated improved efficacy compared to conventional paclitaxel, a taxane commonly used to treat many forms of cancer.
